Pocketbook Friendly Wedding Flowers at the Edgewater

Posted on: April 7th, 2017 by melanie No Comments

It was kind of an overcast day in autumn but we just keep going in Seattle even if it is a wedding. Our amazing bride chose blue and burgundy as her  color palate which I thought would be much harder than it was but since red is in abundance in the fall it was pretty easy. With the back drop of grey skies and cold water, the warm colors were perfect at the Edgewater Hotel. We used garden roses, spray roses, scabiosa and a mix of local flowers for the brides “Lexy” bouquet. She wanted trailing ribbons too so of course thats what we did. The ceremony was flanked with tall branches of fall foliage, gold urns and log pedestals provided by the planner. The aisle was lined with pillar candles for a romantic glow. Guest tables, dressed with blue linens, were decorated with our gold vase arrangements and a few pumpkin jars of flowers. Spice jars, pumpkin jars and the brides bouquet were perfect on the sweet heart table. Little jars were used on the escort card table as well. Lots of details were provided by the bride and Amber from A Rene. It doesn’t look like a budget friendly wedding but it was.


The bride chose our Pocketbook line of wedding flowers, beautiful flowers at a great price. The items she chose were our Lexy brides bouquet, Ceci bridesmaids bouquet, pumpkin jars, spice jars, gold vase centerpieces, large arrangements. The bride and Planner provided all the additional decor to make this pretty wedding the best ever.

Summer at the Farm Kitchen

Posted on: January 16th, 2016 by melanie No Comments

Peachy pink flowers fresh from the garden are what we used for this super sweet Farm Kitchen wedding. The Farm Kitchen has a relaxed country feel with display and working gardens, orchards and a bachelors cabin. For this wedding we chose locally grown flowers and some from our own cutting garden. Blush garden roses, fruit, clematis, cafe dahlias, vines and sage hydrangeas in pale shades are some of the flowers we used in Sarah’s bridal bouquet. We took inspiration from her bouquet and used them for the ceremony aisle and for the reception tables. Sarah’s beautiful dress from the dress theory in Seattle, we love them.

Elegant Marries Dashing

I was having trouble coming up with one word to describe Elizabeth, beautiful, classic, gracious but I think elegant encompasses all of those qualities. Then there is the groom well what can I say, dashing sums it up. Together they seem so right. elegant bride and a dashing groom

JM Cellars Wedding

Posted on: February 25th, 2013 by melanie No Comments

JM Cellars is such a special place for a wedding. The wedding has to be on the small side, but every inch of the winery is lovely. Our bride planned an intimate wedding for sixteen from across the country. Beckie from Vintage Ambiance designed and hung the romantic chandelier. MBF added one large arrangement along with an eclectic mix of sweet little flowers to the single guest table. The bride was dresses in lace so we made a bouquet with lots of textures and soft colors.

Peach and grey wedding flowers

Posted on: February 2nd, 2013 by melanie No Comments

Lots of brides this year want peach wedding flowers. Their bridesmaids are wearing grey and peach is a great color for a grey dress. Grey is a great neutral color that goes well with most all flowers. I painted my house grey for just that reason. For this wedding at the Manor House on Bainbridge Island we used peachy pink flowers with some creams and pale yellow.

I love the Farm Kitchen. Well I am kind of a country girl, but the relaxed beauty of the farm is so very charming. Photographers always take advantage of the multiple photo ops and Stacey Jacobsen of Love Study Photography is no exception.She took the seriously

amazing photos this summer. My lovely bride is a german teacher and named all her table in german, which took me a minute to understand. We chose pink flowers with touches of lavender, yellow crespedia and succulents. Burlap runners, with standard white table linens and inexpensive chairs can dramatically not enhance the decor. I think this is truly an exception with the overall look very pretty, not to girly and very warm and kitchen, wedding, wedding flowers, melanie benson floral

Bainbridge Island Country Wedding

Posted on: November 8th, 2012 by melanie No Comments

Bainbridge Island was the setting for this fun country Wedding. The old farm is a new wedding venue complete with a victorian house and a red barn. The brides family collect vintage silver pieces for over a year and planted them with succulents for the guest tables. We made all the bouquets from fun garden flowers to go with the vintage dresses. Boutonnieres were made from textures and wrapped with twine. The bride chose a short vintage dress which looked really great on her. Allison Lum did a great job, as always, coordinating every detail of the ceremony and reception. Stellar photographer Kristen Honeycutt captured all the best moments of the day

Romantic and fragrant, we love garden roses. A perfect substitute for peonies in the summer garden roses have the same billowy shape. I love to add them to a brides bouquet for a soft romantic look. The roses are in high demand during the summer wedding season so it is important to order your bouquet early enough to ensure delivery. They are not inexpensive but a few blooms added to your bouquet is worth every penny.spring or summer brides bouquet

Megan and Chris were married on a very beautiful day this summer. The ceremony took place in Port Gamble at Saint Catherine”s Church.

After the ceremony the entire crowd moved the brides grandparents for a night of celebration. I made bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids out of rich summer colors that the bride loves. Red, orange, eggplant and gold are the colors the bride chose. Melanie Benson Floral also made a lare alter arrangement that contrasted nicely with the blue walls of the Port Gamble Church. Friends and family enjoyed a reception at the home of the rides grandparents. We delivered the large arrangement which we used on the buffet.
